I am building a tank up soon for my cichlids, i want to scape it but with no plants (they will get eaten) but will be using a lot of rock.
What is the best way t protect the glass of the tank from the rocks i will be using?

Unipac sell quality replica rock, AquaEssentials stock it. They do Okiishi, Sutishi and Ocean rock, all of them look like REAL rocks :D

most people use Egg Crate. The 1 - 2cm thick stuff which is like a grid.
